      Definitely getting back to his very best along side Virgil and how timely that is. He has had to be patient but he is another player who has plenty left in the tank for the run in.

      The gap between his 5 yard speed, and getting up to full speed has decreased as he's got fitter, and I often forget just how quick he is when he's at full fitness.

      I especially like how he steps into midfield, but he does it at pace and that really unsettles the opposition, draws them in, then he uses the space behind them to pick a pass.

      Great stuff.

      Unsettles is the perfect word, the opposition clearly panic when he makes those classy drives into the middle.

      I just think he’s a superb player

      Much like we have seen with Matip and Lovren that these defenders need a run of games to work out the kinks and find their form and he looks more comfortable as each game rolls along.

      I just feel as the boss is a deep thinker and has him as first choice cover for right back.  He sees potential coming in from the youths for this position,  Williams and Hoever and is biding time.

      I wouldn’t say he was poor, just not at the standard Matip and Lovren were producing

      So far they’ve all done the same. Matip came into the team due to injuries and he really upped his game, Lovren then came in due to Matip getting injured and he upped his game on the whole and now Gomez has come in and he’s upped his game.

      All three of them just need a couple of games and they find that consistency again.

      Vardy never had a sniff of goal last night,Lovren and Matip are good players but i doubt they would have kept him so quiet, no co- incidence we are not shipping many goals since Joe has been back fully fit.

      Van Dijk-Lovren - 17 goals conceded in 18 games = 0.94 goals per game
      Van Dijk-Matip - 16 goals conceded in 24 games = 0.67 goals per game
      Van Dijk-Gomez - 5 goals conceded in 13 games = 0.38 goals conceded per game

      Again I thought he was standout player for us tonight in a game where he was called upon a few times to bail out TAA on the right side and he coming on top in a lot of 1v1 battles either in the air or on the ground with pace. You can tell he is feeling good about his play of late with the confident runs with the ball past players in tight area's to start the attack.

      Gomez's partnership with VVD has given us 6 clean sheets in the last 6 games.

      we have been talking a lot of Rhian but I just think its worth reflecting on how well Joe is now doing but it has taken him almost 12 months since his injury to get fit again and establish himself back in the side. These young lads have to be so mature so early on in their careers don't they. Fancy him to be imperious again today

      Has Gomez been our most important player this past 6 weeks? We haven't conceded a goal in nearly 600 minutes of League football having previously struggled to keep clean sheets. Our defence has picked up massively since Joe has returned to form and (bizarrely) since Henderson replaced Fab as our number 6 (not suggesting Fab is the reason)

      Just think the pair of them together are something special , it’s always taken Joe time to get right after an injury , but once he’s got minutes under his belt his class shines , it’s no coincidence that we have seven on the bounce now , best thing is I see him getting better the more him and Virgil are together a special partnership we have right there ,
